From Nishio Japan, our Ceremonial Matcha is the purest quality matcha, upholding the highest standards in the matcha industry. The quality of our ceremonial matcha is recognized by leading tea masters in Japan.

Before harvest, the Camellia sinensis green tea plants are shaded. This extra step brings out brightness and sweetness in the tea leaf. After the leaves are harvested and processed, they are ground down to fine powder.

Culinary vs Ceremonial Matcha

Matcha ceremonial and culinary grade matcha are two different grades of matcha tea. Here are the key differences between them:

1. Quality: Ceremonial grade matcha powder is considered the highest quality matcha available. The youngest tea leaves are carefully selected and processed to ensure a vibrant green hue and a smooth, delicate flavor.

Whereas culinary matcha is made from older tea leaves. This results in a duller hue and is generally used for cooking and baking.

2. Flavor: High-quality matcha has a balanced flavor profile with natural sweetness and mild astringency. It is known for its smooth and mellow taste. Culinary matcha, on the other hand, has a stronger and more bitter flavor. This makes culinary matcha more suitable for blending with other ingredients in recipes.

3. Color: Ceremonial matcha has a vibrant, jade green color, which is a sign of its high quality. Culinary matcha, on the other hand, may have a slightly duller green color.

4. Texture: Ceremonial matcha has an extra fine texture and feels silky smooth to the touch. Culinary matcha may have a slightly coarser texture.

5. Price: Due to its higher quality, ceremonial matcha is generally more expensive than culinary matcha.

When choosing between culinary and ceremonial matcha, consider your intended use. Ceremonial matcha is the best choice if you plan to drink matcha as a standalone beverage. It should definitely be the choice for a traditional tea ceremony. If you plan to use matcha for cooking, baking, or making lattes or smoothies, culinary matcha is more suitable.


How to Make Matcha

  2. Add 2oz of hot water (water just under a boil will achieve the best results)
  3. Whisk vigorously with your Chasen in a zig-zag motion until the tea is frothy.
  4. Enjoy your matcha tea straight from your matcha bowl for the traditional matcha experience.
